(Vocus) March 2, 2009 -- Nationwide Medical/Surgical, a distributor of the flu vaccine and flu vaccine supplies has unveiled their annual 2009 list of what to do if exposed to the flu virus.

The flu is a highly contagious disease known as the influenza virus. It infects the respiratory tract and the virus can range from mild to very severe and in some cases can be fatal. As a matter of fact, the Center for Disease Control reports that over 30,000 people die each year due to the influenza virus. The best way to avoid the flu virus is to get an annual flu vaccination. The flu vaccine works by introducing either weakened or dead versions of the flu virus to the body, so that it can create the proper immunities or antibodies to the virus. If there is a future exposure to the virus, the body will have the proper measures in place to fight it off.

Unfortunately, there is no guarantee against getting the flu. Even if one does get the flu shot, it is still possible (although less likely) to become infected with the influenza virus. If one becomes ill, there are several measures one can take to lessen the severity of the flu.

The most important thing to do if one gets the flu is to rest at home. It is important to get ample sleep and to drink plenty of liquids. Sleeping helps the body spend its energy fighting the illness and drinking liquids helps the body avoid dehydration that can come quicker due to the influenza virus. Hand washing is highly encouraged to avoid passing on the flu virus.

There are several over the counter medicines that can help combat flu symptoms including pain medications. There are also anti-viral medications such as Tamiflu that a doctor can prescribe. In an effort to lessen the severity of flu symptoms it is important to call the doctor when one begins to feel these symptoms coming on so that the proper medications can be prescribed.

Usually the flu does not require a visit to the doctor unless one experiences chest pain, difficulty breathing, fever that lasts more than 2 days, vomiting, or persistent coughing or headaches. These symptoms can be a sign that the body is not effectively fighting the flu virus. Following these tips will help fight off the flu virus.

Nationwide Medical/Surgical has been distributing the influenza vaccine to physicians, hospitals and other mass immunizers since 1996. To find out more about flu vaccine and other ways to help deal with the flu virus, please visit www.nationwidemedical.net.
